Research Collaboration Startup

We offer the opportunity to consult with us to discuss the possible introduction of statistical methodologies into research projects. As such, we have established the Research Collaboration Startup Program, which can help experts from various fields understand how to introduce statistical methodologies into their research projects to use their data to meet their objectives.
In general, we ask Program applicants to visit our Institute to have an in-person consultation. Please kindly be advised that because we receive many applications, there may be a significant wait for your consultation.
The scope of the consultation not only includes a discussion of analysis methods for data already collected, but also a discussion of methods for data collection and surveys and the planning of experiments.
